Patrice at Old Back Porch
I love the vintage feel of the tones here! I agree with Patrice, they look like they were pulled right out of the ground. Thank you for sharing!
Heather at Mrs. Southern Bride
The vibrant colors are stunning and their richness draws you in as if you are walking along the beach as well. Thank you for linking up Heather!
Abrianna at Cowgirl Yankee
The black and white is perfect here! The dramatic tones emphasize the details on this cute cat's face! Thank you for sharing Abrianna!

I was unable to get out and shoot this weekend. I hope to shoot some flowers around my house tomorrow if I get off in time and the light holds out. However, I did happen upon this snail one morning before work and had to take a few seconds to shoot it before I dashed off to my classroom. I wish I had more time to play with the aperture to get more of the snail's body in focus, but there is something about the focus on the shell that just sort of works for me. I have another one to post on Thursday that is closer with more detail, but the shell is out of focus and the body is in focus. What do you think? Does the snail body out of focus detract too much? What do you think about the opposite with the body being in focus and the shell out?
Settings: ISO 640, 100mm, ss1/160, f/4.0
